Enabling dynamic networks using an architecture for collaborative scenarios

Abstract: Collaborative business requires integration of involved enterprises' information systems. Characteristics of project networks like changing business partners or raising exceptions lead to dynamic structures within collaborations. This is a special challenge for a common IT infrastructure. This paper presents an architecture for dynamic cross-enterprise processes' planning, execution, and controlling on a conceptual level. In a first step, a distinction of local and global knowledge is provided in order to establish a Collaborative Business Process Management Lifecycle. Afterwards, requirements for a collaboration-supporting architecture are briefly upraised and the resulting architecture is presented. In a last step, the architecture is adopted to special requirements of AEC. Domain-specific data like placing units and specifications are introduced and the process of tender, placing and accounting is depicted within the architecture. Therefore, different parts of the architecture are involved.
